"Human Need Not Apply," posted Wednesday by CGP Grey, a channel on YouTube that produces popular explanatory videos, is fascinating and eye-opening -- and though it runs 15 minutes, it's hard to not want to watch the whole thing because it sucks you right in (as of Friday morning it's already racked up more than a million views).
